Tully Potter writes: "Had they never met, Adolf Busch (1891-1952) and Rudolf Serkin (1903-1991) would still be regarded as two of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. But together they formed something extraordinary, even among the various marvellous ensembles organised by Busch. When they did meet, at the Vienna apartment of mutual friends in 1920, Serkin was only 17 and Busch at 29 was already the most famous German violinist, playing the classics, while his junior had been championing the avant-garde movements of his time. They were of different backgrounds, but the lad was ready for a change back to the mainstream and he and Busch hit it off straight away. He became almost a son to Adolf and Frieda Busch, lived in their various houses and in 1935 married their daughter Irene.
 
The major outcome of his arrival was the formation of the Busch/Serkin Duo. Adolf Busch believed rightly that in violin sonatas the piano was as important as the violin. Of the other pianists with whom he might have struck up a partnership, Edwin Fischer was too romantic in style and Elly Ney was rather eccentric.
 
With Serkin there were no such difficulties. In him, Busch found a pianist who combined the best attributes of all his previous partners. ’From the first time we played together it was just like one,’ said Serkin, ’though of course he was much older than I was. But he was wonderful to me.’ An indefatigable practiser, Serkin would take infinite pains to perfect their joint interpretations. The new duo made their début in Berlin on 25 January 1921, playing a Beethoven programme. From 1929 the two performed their entire repertoire from memory. ’We decided page turners were too distracting,’ Serkin explained. But there were obvious advantages in playing by heart – and if it circumscribed their repertoire, it intensified the rapport between them on stage. They made their American début as a duo in 1933 with a recital at the Library of Congress. They returned in 1937 with Beethoven sonata cycles in Washington, New York and Boston and told an interviewer: ’We specialise in the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Reger and Busoni.’ They could have added Bach to that list; and they did more than anyone to gain acceptance for the Schubert Fantasy and the Schumann sonatas. In Brahms, they drew on advice from the composer’s associates. The peak of their joint career was the period from 1925 to 1945: before that, Serkin was the junior partner, while after the Second World War; he was the linch-pin as Busch’s playing became a little less consistent. They had few rivals, although Szymon Goldberg and Lili Kraus matched them in Mozart and the Franco-Belgian ranks boasted Alfred Dubois and Marcel Maas before the war, and Zino Francescatti and Robert Casadesus after it.
 
Busch and Serkin pioneered the modern sonata concert and raised the status of the violin-and-piano duo. Here are some of their best live performances from the last 11 years of their collaboration."
